I had a great time playing this course. This was my first time at this course. It's a manageable course if you play it safe. Unfortunately, thunderstorms got in the way at the 10th tee. I asked for a rain Che k for the back nine and the staff was accommodating. I'll return in a few weeks to finish out my round.

Was able to play for 1/3 the normal cost because of aeration the day before. Regardless the course is a step above most HHI courses. Shame on me for not having a course guide so i'd know what to avoid. Scenically could not ask for more. Will definitely play again.

It was my first round on the Cupp course, and I enjoyed it. I liked the layout, and we weren't bogged down to a 4.5 hr round of "resort" golf. I will remember the nuances of some of the holes for next time!

I have played at a few other courses on HHI and this time is hard for the courses. This was in top shape even though I heard they don't water. A challenging course with water and sand. Greens were slow for the first half but wind blew them dry from the rain the night before and were reasonable by 4p. Pace was good and hardly anybody out on course. Staff were pleasant and helpful! Is a semi-private course so the members had the first 1/2 of the day for themselves which worked out well.

Disappointing services. Course layout was great; challenging but fair. The condition of the cart paths, transition areas were rough. It needs some cleaning and care. But on Hilton Head, you would expect better amenities for your vacation dollar. No water in the coolers, soda machines didn't work, eight bucks for a bag of balls.. Cart was ragged. There are plenty of courses to visit here. They need to make more of an effort.

We played today at Palmetto Hall Plantation on the Cupp course. We got a good deal on Golf Now and there was hardly anyone around so we got on one hour earlier and played virtually with no one around. The course is challenging and enjoyable. Play from the tees that enable you to have chances for some birdies and pars. Would return at these prices.

My wife and I along with two friends played the Robert Cupp course yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Course was well manicured, greens were true, and sand traps actually had sand in them. Course layout was a good challenge and the 18th hole is a beauty.

I can thoroughly recommend this course.

Normally a great place to play, but got stuck behind a very slow group. On the front saw the ranger on the first hole and that was it. Proceeded to wait on every shot until the turn, when we called the pro shop for assistance. Thegroup was 2and half holes behind. The bag boy came out and asked if we had a problem. When we explained our situation, he responded with, "well, what do you want me to do?" Ended up approaching the group and asked if they could play ready golf. They did pick up the pace and we finished the round in 5:30!

The course was in very nice condition. Greens were pretty fast. The undulations make them very difficult, depending on pin placement. I could see where they could be diabolical, if placed right.

Fairways and tees were in good shape. All in all a fun layout with plenty of challenge for any level of player.

The pace of play was pretty slow. It was over 5 hours for the round due to group in front of us. Ranger was checking on and recording times during the round, but didn’t appear to do anything to speed it up.

We would definitely play here when we return to Hilton Head!

Beautiful course in great shape. Not crowded. Challenging. Play is influenced strongly by the wind.

Downside of playing on Monday is that the driving range is closed for weekly maintenance so no warm up before stepping to the first hole.
